Awesome, 2.85" Camarasaurus Tooth - Skull Creek Quarry
The tooth is quite large at 2.85" long and has exceptional preservation with no visible wear. There is also a partial root still attached with is rare. Not many Camarasaurus teeth are found this nice.
This tooth comes from what is being called the "Salt & Pepper Layer" of the Skull Creek Quarry, near Dinosaur. Colorado. Within the past several years this quarry has produced articulated remains of several types of dinosaurs including large theropods, sauropods and Ornithischia. There is a thin layer in the quarry, probably representing a sandy river bottom that produces many isolated teeth and tumbled bone fragments. This tooth was collected from this layer in the summer of 2014. The quarry is also the location of the recently announce "Elvis" Torvosaurus find.
